Description:

Victoria is a versatile plum tree, producing fruit which can be eaten, used for cooking and for jams.It produces a heavy crop which often needs to be thinned if fruits are to be produced each year. Left to its own devices the sheer weight of fruit may well break the branches of the tree.Harvest between Mid-August to late September.If you are growing only one fruit tree, then this is the one to plant.It is self fertile and will pollinate with any other variety of plum.

As with all trees from the prunus family, the leaves will start to appear autumnal and slightly shabby from mid July on wards. This is not a disease, but is mainly due to this years contrasting weather conditions and will not affect the performance of the tree.


Trees are grown on St Julien A rootstock which will grow to 10-12ft max.

 

Pollination: 

It is self-fertile and will produce fruit by itself.

 

For better fruiting plant a compatible partner:

Cambridge Gage, Czar, Merryweather, Mirabelle de Nancy, Opal, Oullins Golden Gage

    The delivery guy said he had been wondering what was in the package and he guessed "golf club". He laughed when I said it was a Victoria Plum tree. It was very snuggly wrapped so do take care when releasing it from packaging... but it was in really super condition. I soaked it in a bucket of water overnight and planted it firmly with a good compost mix. I have high hopes that it will sprout leaves and hopefully blossom in 2020.

    The tree looks healthy and is more than 4 ft tall. Next year will tell how well it fruits. The size of the roots indicate that it is a mature specimen.
